New Piece!

Lists, 20" x 20", 2009, by Jeanne Raffer Beck. Monoprinted, screen printed and painted silk with copper foiling and applied synthetic sheer mounted on stretcher bar wrapped canvas, $900.

Arrive early and stay late --now there's a recipe for a productive studio day! Yesterday flew by, from warm up exercises with gestural writing and testing different brushes and paint consistencies to taking a work that I wasn't quite sure how to complete and suddenly knowing exactly what to do with it -- and being willing to lose the piece if the idea didn't work out. Happily it did!

The day brought an unexpected e-mail from Ken Smith in Australia, one of my all time favorite teachers, who is also a gifted artist. He sent a link about artist GW Bot in a blog post by Sue Lawty (another extraordinary Australian artist) called "Glyphs and Lower Molongo Valley",
whose work with language imagery is inspired by natural forms in the Australian landscape. Another inspiration and resource as I delve deeper into this body of work.
